About The Harvest Awards:

The Harvest Awards honor individuals, organizations, and businesses across the United States that do an exceptional job of supporting sustainable agriculture and regional food systems. Do you know visionary farmers who not only raise amazing food but have also developed innovations in growing, marketing, and collaborating with their community in new and exciting ways? Are there inventive individuals, organizations or businesses in your community who are developing cutting-edge models to connect people and sustainable, regionally-produced food?

Please help us recognize outstanding work from around the country by nominating someone whose work you admire. This year’s categories include: 

     Farmer Award
     Connecting Communities, Farmers, and Food Award
     Wave of the Future Award
     Good Food for Health Award
